The Post Office at Forestdale, (North Smithfield Township, Providence County) was established on July 31, 1890 under Postmaster Ernest A. Mowry. This post office is currently in operation. The Postmaster is listed in "Rhode Island Postal History: The Post Offices" as Ernst A. Mowry. This is in error as he is listed in the 1890-93 Woonsocket directory as Ernest A. Mowry and his occupation is given as grocer and postmaster. He is listed as living on Millville Road
